It's here, finally! Saratoga has been buzzing all week in anticipation of one of the biggest events of the year: The Travers!

This year is definitely special in comparison to past years, with Triple Crown Winner, American Pharoah, racing in the 146th running of the Travers. With such exciting news comes a lot of changes to take into consideration when heading to the track this weekend! Luckily for you, we've rounded up everything from fantastic celebrations to new security protocols you should be aware of.

Whether this is your first time attending or you're a seasoned vet -- take a look at our Travers roundup:

While the thoroughbred racing industry is primarily male dominated, Sheila Rosenblum and her all-female syndicate, Lady Sheila Stable (Jill Zarin, former Real Housewife of New York City is a member!) are breaking the mold. Rosenblum's horse, La Verdad recently won big at  the Honorable Miss Handicap in Saratoga, and will run in the Ballerina stakes on Travers Day. She is also owner of American Pharoah's little sibling, Pioneer of the Nile.

We were lucky enough to speak with Rosenblum about what sparked her passion for thoroughbred racing, the challenges of running an all-female syndicate and her favorite part about visiting Saratoga. Get the scoop!
